      Think we should add "Cowboy Stuntman" by Dean Smith with Mike Cox, Texas Tech University Press, 2013.
      Dean starts with his real life ancestry in Texas, growing up with horses and watching westerns on Saturday afternoons. He excels at track and wins a gold medal in the 1952 Olympics, but always wanted to be a part of western movies and through a mutual and famous friend becomes stunt double for Dale Robertson on "Tales of Wells Fargo".
      Through a series of meetings and networking, he meets John Wayne in 1959 and is hired on "The Alamo". He goes on to perform in nine more Wayne films and becomes a friend for life with Duke's family.
      He relives several exciting and humorous experiences which I won't spoil here. There are many great photos and a filmography.


      We deal in lead, friend.
